Delta AirElite Introduces New 10-Hour Fleet Membership Card

Program expansion makes fleet membership industry’s most accessible jet card program

CINCINNATI, July 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Delta AirElite announced today the launch of “Perfect 10(TM)”, the private jet industry’s only 10-hour private jet membership program. Offered through Sept. 30, 2005, this program enhancement complements the company’s current 25-, 50- and 100-hour Fleet Membership program options.

“Delta AirElite Fleet Membership brings an unprecedented number of travel options and convenience to business jet travel,” said Michael B. Green, president and chief executive officer of Delta AirElite Business Jets. “Our newest program option opens the door to even more consumers and allows them to experience the benefits of private jet membership with a simple 10-hour commitment.

“With the Perfect 10 jet card, you can experience the advantages of jet card membership with less commitment and expense than any other jet card program,” Green said. “As with our existing Fleet Membership programs, there is no asset purchase, no fixed costs or monthly management fees and no long- term contracts. You pay only for the time you fly.”

Pricing for the program starts at $41,400 for 10 hours in the light jet category. The program also offers guaranteed aircraft availability with 12 hours notice and members can fly all or a portion of their purchased hours as one-way flights. A unique benefit of the program is the Delta AirElite “Efficiency Bonus(TM),” which allows members to enjoy up to three additional hours of flight time when flying roundtrips. The program also features a 10 percent credit towards the purchase of a 25-hour Fleet Membership.

Perfect 10 members will also receive benefits when flying on Delta Air Lines with the privileges of the Delta SkyMiles(R) Medallion(R) program. Based on the aircraft category selected, members will qualify for the corresponding Silver Medallion, Gold Medallion, or Platinum Medallion membership. The Delta SkyMiles Medallion program offers a wide range of benefits, including upgrades, priority check-in, boarding, seating and Crown Room Club(R) privileges.
